Surrey, BC – Charges have now been laid against a man who was involved in shooting and subsequent standoff with Surrey RCMP this past weekend in South Surrey.
On June 3, 2017 at 7:15pm, Surrey RCMP was called to a report of a shooting in the 1300 block of 176th Street. Police found one man who had been shot allegedly by another man who was still in the area. Both the men were known to each other. The victim was transported to hospital and is in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries. Police contained the area while a police negotiator attempted to contact the suspect. At approximately 11:50pm the suspect was taken into custody without further incident (see previous release).
Now charged with Aggravated Assault and Intent To Injure While Using A Firearm is Kenneth TURPIN, 70 years old, of Surrey. TURPIN, who is not known to police, remains in custody. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 6th.
“Public safety was maintained throughout this operation,” says Corporal Scotty Schumann. “Thanks to assistance from the Emergency Response Team and a police negotiator, this matter was resolved without further incident.”
